Loose Parts in STEM Learning: Morning Workshop

Product Description

Children are born with a natural curiosity and creativity to explore and interact with the world around them. When children are invited to mess about with Loose Parts, or materials that are unstructured in everyday environments, adults can propose and support their learning experiences through explorative play.

 

In this workshop, led by Rosalba Bortolotti of Acorn Collaborative, participants will be invited to interact and experience Loose Parts theory in the context of STEM, (Science Technology, Engineering Math) in a pre-K classroom. 

 

Hands-on with a huge variety of materials, we'll co-construct knowledge at the intersection of STEM and loose parts. 

 

Ideal for ECE's, teachers or consultants supporting children from toddler to kindergarten, we'll explore how to support children’s play and learning guided by Ontario’s pedagogy for the early years, How Does Learning Happen?
